Kristian “Kohle” Kohlmannslehner joins us for a long awaited discussion about how to keep things fresh in extreme genres.
It’s difficult to stand out from the crowd in extreme metal productions. Conventions often take precedence over experimentation. Kohle is certainly a producer that manages to bring originality to every production he touches. His perspectives on how to keep work fresh and avoid burnout, finding a production’s unique voice, and getting bands to be invested in finding new ways to do things make for some intriguing conversation.
“If you keep on working and working and working you get lost and repeat yourself.” – Kohle
ON THIS EPISODE, YOU’LL LEARN ABOUT:
– Producing vs. engineering extreme metal
– Gaining client trust
– Experimenting to find interesting character, rather than just “better” tone
– Avoiding burnout through smart scheduling and varying your tasks
– Layering guitar tones
– And much, much more
